IRS suspends mailing of delinquent return-related notices to tax-exempt entities
Some taxpayers and tax professionals may still receive the notices during the next few weeks.
Delinquent return-related notices to tax-exempt entities
The IRS today issued a release announcing that it was suspending the issuance of several notices generally mailed to tax-exempt or governmental entities in case of a delinquent return.
According to the IRS transmittal message, the IRS has not yet processed several million returns filed by individuals and entities because of the pandemic, and the suspension of the notices “will help avoid confusion when a filing is still in process.” The IRS release identifies the subject notices.
The IRS stated that it will continue to assess the inventory of pending returns to determine the appropriate time to resume mailing these notices.
The IRS noted that some taxpayers and tax professionals may still receive the notices during the next few weeks and that there is no need to call or respond to the notices as long as the return was filed timely.
